Forecasting: a pirate's dilemma

05.03.2011

Sparkling history

Last year Barbara Matijević and Giuseppe Chico were guests at Spoken World with the first two parts of the trilogy Theory of a performance to come or The only way to avoid the massacre is to become its authors? In it they attempt to get a grip on our era, which is dominated by the media and consumption. We are extremely pleased to have these sparkling and fantastical lecture-performances back on the bill and present you with the brand new final part.

Part 3: Forecasting

Whereas I am 1984 and Tracks were about the disappearance of our awareness of history, the conclusion of the trilogy, Forecasting, is about our fear of losing our future too. The image of the life still to come is captured by advertising, fashion, film, science fiction and so on, in stereotype stories and structures. Using the methods of forecasting developed in science, philosophy and sociology, Matijević and Chico wish to liberate our image of the future once again. This final part focuses on movement.
